Twins Jess and Eve Gale were among a group of eight Love Island stars seen flouting the Rule of Six COVID-19 restrictions at an apartment party in Essex recently.
After the 21-year-old siblings gathered with a group of reality star pals for the launch of their hair extension campaign, they partied the night away with co-stars, where they reportedly danced and sang together, while failing to observe social distancing.
The gathering occurred after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the new Rule of Six, prohibiting groups of more than that number meeting socially as novel coronavirus numbers rise once again at alarming rates.

A number of the stars took to their respective Instagram accounts to document the events of the night, reportedly uploading videos and snaps of the revelry.
According to the Daily Star, Biggs, George, Alexi, and Josh met up for lunch at Sheesh in Chigwell, Essex, before heading to the apartment to party the night away with Jess, Eve, Rebecca, and Eva.

Global health expert Dr Sophie Harman told the publication: 'Lots of people do care what Love Island contestants do and will take it as a cue that a slight bend in the rules – eight not six – is OK.
'While it seems unfair, those who trade in influence have to be held to account for that influence.'
She added that the TV personalities now 'need to become COVID-19 influencers in a positive way'.
